Get discounted diabetes management products delivered to your door.
The Diabetes Member Benefit is the latest phase in our growing commitment to supporting our members living with diabetes. To minimize the costs associated with managing the disease and the frequency of trips to the pharmacy, members can now have discounted blood glucose testing products delivered from Accu-Chek a trusted global brand.
In the U.S., 34.2 million people have diabetes — that’s about one in every ten people. Medical costs for people with diabetes are twice as high as for those without it. Looking ahead, more than one in three people (88 million Americans) have prediabetes, blood sugar levels higher than average, which often leads to a diabetes diagnosis.1
The good news, however, is that continuous advancements in treatment and management mean that people living with diabetes can now lead long and healthy lives.
Your well-being journey
Empowering members to take control of their health is an important step toward enriching personal, family and community well-being. Foresters is built on a rich history of helping people lead healthy, joyful and big-hearted lives. Supporting people living with diabetes is an important, and growing, part of this larger purpose.
In 2019, Foresters launched an industry-first in the U.S. — non-medical life insurance products with relaxed underwriting guidelines for people living with Type 2 diabetes. This means more Americans living with diabetes have access to life insurance without paying higher premiums.
Dr. Oronhyatekha, one of our early leaders here at Foresters, lived with diabetes in the early 20th century. He believed in helping communities and inspiring people to lead a healthy lifestyle. Our support for our members with diabetes today carries on his legacy.
